  1. Good Thing

    Fall Garland

    Hide

    Create a seasonal garland to drape around the doorway using multicolored decorative dried corn. 

    Space cobs 6 to 8 inches apart on a length of raffia (available at crafts stores), tying it around each piece where the husk meets the kernels. 

    The cobs will hang vertically; if you'd like them to be horizontal (as shown in the center of garland), tie the tip of each cob to the husk of the next using floral wire.

  2. Asian-Inspired Christmas Tree

    Hide

    Who says Christmas trees have to be fir? Inspired by the bonsai collection at the Arnold Arboretum in his native Boston, Martha Stewart Living's Kevin Sharkey created this enchanting roost using an artificial bonsai. 

    Spray-painted gold and accented with glitter, it rises out of a traditional pot topped with moss and snow. Japanese-lantern ornaments provide a pleasing change of scale, but the crowning glories of this tree are the birds -- coated in glitter and grouped in flocks of like colors.

  3. Colorful Egg Tree

    Hide

    With bright marbleized eggs suspended on yellow ribbons and a ring of golden pot marigolds around the base, it sets the stage for a lively egg hunt or leisurely spring brunch.

  4. Can-Do Cans

    Hide

    Use our red, white, and blue designs to cover empty tin cans, then fill them with flowers (we chose sweet pea and veronica), utensils, breadsticks, and more.

    Valentine's Day Treat Bags

    Hide

    If you're looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day present, you can't go wrong with candy.

    For an easy-to-make gift, simply fill a cello bag three-quarters full with layers of jelly beans and hard candy. Top it off with a heart-shaped lollipop, stuck directly into the mixture, and tie the whole package together with a beautiful ribbon.
